Does the above line ring any bells? If it doesn’t it will make sense now
Don’t stress too much,
It is the meaning of the name and the very motto of Kamal Hassan’s party “Makkal Needhi Maiam”
Kamal Hassan is definitely one of the most famous Indian actor and has always been one of a kind when it comes to versatile acting, but politics, this game is definitely a heavy one…
Especially the politics in Tamilnadu has been witnessing changes in political agendas, changes in playing politics and even quite a number of swings of members from one party to another party
In the meanwhile, there has been a sudden interest displayed by the leading actors of the Tamil Industry from super star Rajinikanth and Kamal Hassan to Vishal. While the SuperStar Rajinikanth announced his interest in politics, Kamal Kassan started his own party. The interesting fact is that Actor Vishal filed his nomination during the Amma by-election in 2017, but was left wavering whether his nomination would be filed or not, final verdict being cancellation of his nomination.
But coming back to Kamal Hassan’s party, The party symbol has a unique meaning that signifies solidarity, understanding and unification of the six states that surround Tamil Nadu.
As sources and also by means of words said by Kamal Hassan ..in his words :”In the party symbol you can see six hands holding together ..Six hands symbolise six states -Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Karnataka, Kerala, Tamil Nadu and one Union Territory Andaman and Nicobar Islands and the star in the middle of symbol represents people”
He said his party would work on providing quality education to all and diminishing caste and religion difference in the society.
“We will work on many issues including these. We will set an example; fight corruption together. People have unfortunately sold their votes for merely Rs 6,000. People ask me if I will give them money. My answer is no, I will not. If you accept money, you cannot ask your representative for anything,” he said.
When asked who his inspiration is — Bhim Rao Ambedkar, Mahatma Gandhi, Periyar E. V. Ramasamy, the former actor said he liked and was inspired from all, including Arvind Kejriwal, N. Chandrababu Naidu, Pinarayi Vijayan, and Barack Obama. He also said that his two daughters are also free to select whether they can join in his way or not.
Haasan said that all these years he was in people’s heart and now he wants to be a part of their residence,
“I am the lamp in your house, which does not flicker in winds of corruption”
This sudden entry of actors into Tamil Nadu politics is definitely game changing and we will have to wait and watch how it will impact the people and their lives. But the real question is, Will Kamal Hassan change politics or will Politics changes Kamal Hassan…
